sunshine in the garden

These last couple of weekends have been filled with late September sunshine. Outside has been the only place to be.

I started in my own garden, lazing around and drinking tea.

IMG_1956 IMG_1957 IMG_1962I’m informed that the fabulous purple plant is callaloo, although having looked at a few pictures, I’m not entirely sure that’s what it is. Anyone any idea? I’d love to grow it, especially if it’s edible.

    The purple flowers look like Amaranth. Depending on the variety, the seeds and/or the leaves are edible. Lovely garden.

    • Aha, amaranth! Thank you SO much – I actually saw a picture in a magazine yesterday that looks just like them and also amaranth so you must be right (I accidentally typed ‘a marathon’ there – shows where my mind is at the minute!). I may even have some amaranth seeds lurking…
